My Students

My students face a lot of challenges, not only academically, but personally and socially as well. They are original thinkers and enjoy hands on learning and activities with movement.

Our public elementary school in Indianapolis faces the daily challenge of educating and motivating students that live well within the poverty level.

Our students are very active learners. They love when we have flexible seating options and choice of tasks within their daily routine. They work best in a flexible, yet structured, environment.

My Project

I have been fortunate to be part of a science initiative that uses hands-on materials to teach STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathmatics) concepts. My classroom receives kits that need to be returned after 8 weeks. My students love the motion lessons using Kinex. It feels like as soon as we start to explore a concept, it is time to return the kit.

Having these supplies will allow my students to explore STEM concepts all year long.

In addition, I currently have no access to calculators. The calculators will not only enhance my STEM lessons, but my regular math lessons as well.
